'The Good Shepherd Appeal'
This appeal has been running every Lent for over 100 years, and involves the children and students of the diocesan schools working together to organise a wide range of fundraising events.
This year the Mini-Vinnies are helping to collect and count the money raised each week to see which year group has the longest snake.
Before the holidays the Mini-Vinnies led the whole school in a Collective Worship about Lent. They highlighted the key facts of Lent which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Maundy Thursday. They then led the school in prayer reflecting on how during Lent we can pray, fast and do works of love.
The Mini-Vinnies did an excellent job of this and feedback from parents and visitors was very postitive.
"I was able to find God in the prayer service."
"It was a good way to begin preparation for Lent."
